Gifts of Stock

Gifts of Stock

Changing the world for farm animals through philanthropy.

Did you know that giving stock may be more beneficial to you than writing a check?

Donate stock to Farm Sanctuary and make the most of your contribution to protect farm animals from cruelty and abuse. Many donors find it convenient to use stock as a way of gifting their favorite charitable organization, and there are tax savings benefits, as well.

When you donate appreciated stock from your long-term holdings to Farm Sanctuary, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, you often may deduct its full market value without paying any tax on the long-term capital gain. This benefits both you and farm animals! You get an additional tax deduction, and Farm Sanctuary receives a larger gift than if you had sold the stock, paid tax on the gain, and given the remainder to Farm Sanctuary. You should always check with your own tax advisor before making a gift of stock or securities.

* Many electronic transfers of stock arrive in Farm Sanctuary’s account with no donor information. We want to say thank you and ensure you receive your tax receipt for your records. Please let us know in advance the gift detail including your name, address, the number of shares, and type of shares so that we may properly acknowledge your kindness for farm animals.

For additional information or for help in making a gift of proprietary mutual funds or a wire transfer of cash, please, contact Farm Sanctuary at 607-207-7783 or email hildaclub@farmsanctuary.org.

Thank you for being a protector of farm animals! You make the difference.
